One of the best Volume so low here most recordings are useless w/out an expensive sound system.
This show & recording is the Grateful Dead at their best. May be my favorite non-JGB TLEO. maybe my favorite ever. These 3 shows just don't get old. Shame that it got released by DP's.

Best banter ever?
This show was featured in The Grateful Dead Hour radio show, episode no. 217
And besides being a fantastic show from the crispy single-drummer era, there's some really fun banter going on early in the second set as Bobby & Phil try to get the crowd to clear the aisles so the fire marshal doesn't shut them down. Specifically the second half of TLEO and Me And My Uncle - those should really be broken out into their own tracks on here for better visibility. The whole band gets into a full storytelling "lame trip" vamp after Me & My Uncle - trying to hypnotize the crowd, referencing rattle snakes - might be my favorite comedy routines ever - lol.

Come hear Uncle John's Band...
Wow, much good music here! It has taken me 3 days to wade thru this show.
Perhaps the biggest standout to me is the UNCLE JOHN'S BAND in a PITB sandwich.
Also really enjoyed T.L.E.O!!!
The sound is so good that you can really follow the musicians and the vocals are clear as well.
There is the running banter about returning to your seats. I think the best approach to this stuff was the SPAC show when the kid(s) was up on the light tower and the band threatened to stop playing. That boy(s) got down pretty quick after that. Imagine being the blockhead(s) who stopped a Dead Show that is worse than the Cubs fan who snagged the foul ball from the glove of the home team in the playoffs a few years back.
Strange not hearing Donna during PLAYING but she was busy giving birth to Zion.
Postscript -I linked this Brokedown Palace from You-tube to the Internet Archive forum as it was what I was listening to when I found out about the passing of a fellow head at the forum.
It is a sweet and mellow Brokedown with beautiful harmonies.
And on a final note:
"It seems a common way to go
get down and row, row, row"

Slipknot! in Playing
Sounds like a down-tempo Slipknot! around the 13:00 mark of PITB.

Weakest of a three night legendary run
Naturally thats why the two other nights had the Dick's Picks release.
Donna sits out because she is giving birth to Boombox.
Bobby gets way pissed at people getting too close to the stage and dancing in the isles. He literally screams twice at the audience during Me and My Uncle "Get back!". Not in his usual half-humorous "take a step back" shtick. After Uncle, Phil takes a calmer approach and sways disobedient heads back to their seats. Sounds like their may have been an unhappy police presence busting their chops that night. Guess this debunks the whole any-thing goes at a dead show attitude. They played at many fancy theaters.
Weak for this run isn't weak. The setlist and show sound great. its just comparing tit-for-tat.
Recording is top notch.
5 for CM transfer
